A master musician will be performing on Saturday, September 16 7:30pm at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall (415 Second St, Davis).
David Grier, who began playing guitar at age 6, is regarded as one of the premier acoustic guitarists in the world, along with his early influences, Doc Watson, Tony Rice, and family friend Clarence White. Recognized by Acoustic Guitar Magazine in 2000 as one of the Artists of the Decade, and named Guitar Player of the Year three times by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Grier has played on four Grammy Award-winning albums, and in 1998 launched his own label, Dreadnought Recordings, which includes some of his own albums Hootenanny (with Dirk Powell and Tim O’Brien) and Evocative (with a rich complement of collaborators e.g. Victor Wooten).
David was also a member of Psychograss, one of the most eclectic bands in the history of American string music whose members included Darol Anger (violin), Mike Marshall (mandolin), Todd Phillips (bass) and Tony Trischka (banjo). Local favorite Joe Craven has also provided percussion for the band.
Grier’s music has been hailed for its “deep musical introspection” as well as his “unmatchable mastery of the guitar”. His appearance in Davis will give you a rare chance to see one of the greatest flatpicking guitarists who ever played the instrument.
Tickets are $20 at the door. There will be a no host bar. Doors open at 7pm. For information contact Juelie Roggli at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (530) 756-3276.
